*I received Chance to Dance for You by Gail Sidonie Sobat as part of the Young Adult Book Award Jury submissions.
The novel deals with big issues:
- domestic violence
Unfortunately the characters were not unique, they were fairly stereotypical and two dimensional. It was a decent story but not fantastically executed. It felt like a less funny episode of Glee without the music. The issues it deals with are important and I cried at one point, so there is no question it will have an impact but I felt like there was something missing in Ian’s narration.
